This Moment

You say there is
No forever
I only want
This moment
So when you lay
On my lap
And let my touch
Ease you to sleep
Working out that pain
Your breathing softer, easier
My hand
Trying to find its place
In this intimacy
I want to stroke your head
But know
That is not my place
I only want
This moment to linger
So I place my hand
On that shoulder
Letting my touch soften
And here we stay
Riding the rhythm of the car
As I watch you sleep
I only want
This moment
To say I love you
But that bump in the road
Brings you out of sleep
And all I want
That moment
Is gone
